The game “I Spy” is a tried and tested game that has kept many people both adults and children entertained for generations. It requires no equipment and can be played almost anywhere and with as many people as you want. One of the most common places to play I Spy, is while taking a long trip in the car, so if you and your family are going away this holiday season, why not try a game of I Spy to help the hours tick away and make your journey more enjoyable.
Here are the rules of the game “I Spy”
- The first thing you need to do is choose who will be the Spy. This can just be done by taking in turns or for the more competitive, it can be done by a simple play of Paper, Scissors, Rock.
- The person who is chosen as the Spy would look around either inside the car or outside of the car and choose something that everyone playing the game can see (this item can not be changed once selected) so be mindful if travelling in the car, the item must be something that you can see for a long time, for example not a street sign that you just passed.
- The spy would announce it by saying “I Spy with my little eye something beginning with ” and announce the letter that the item begins with. Another variation instead of choosing what the object starts with is to substitute an adjective e.g. a Colour, shape or anything else that describes the object. Yet another variation is to choose things that make sounds and say “I Spy with my little eye something that sounds like “”.
- Each person in the group should take turns guessing. The Spy would reply ‘yes’ or ‘no’ then it is the next persons turn. The person guessing can ask any question they wish which can be answered by ‘yes’ or ‘no’. Another variation is that instead of saying ‘yes’ or ‘no’, the Spy can say ‘Hot’ if they are close or ‘Cold’ if they are not close.
- Once someone guesses what the object is, they become the next Spy and the game starts over again.
This is a great way to get the entire family involved for some on road fun.
